 Like a tarogato but more buzzy?
Author: David Peacham

I was in Romania recently and heard some recorded muzak in a restaurant, featuring something that sounded to me like a tarogato but much buzzier.

I expect a tarogato to sound like a woodier version of a soprano sax, which is pretty much what it is. This instrument had an altogether harsher sound, more like a shawm. I know that the word tarogato originally referred to a type of shawm, and was transferred to the "modern" instrument in the 1890s. Maybe what I heard was the old instrument, maybe a tarogato played in an unusual way, maybe something else entirely.

Any suggestions?

If there are so many people on this board unwilling or unable to have a civil and balanced discussion about important issues, then I shan't bother to post here any more.

To the great relief of many of you, no doubt.
